I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

¿DEPRESSED?¿UNEMPLOYED? ¡GET OVER IT!

ACCORDING TO HERNDON L. DAVIS YOU SHOULD GET OVER YOURSELF IF YOU ARE FEELING DEPRESSED AND/OR UNEMPLOYED...& HERE IS HIS 5 REASONS WHY:
IYou are not a victim. One of the biggest things that happens when we get laid off or fired is that we look for someone or something to blame. Some of us are so quick to say, 'Oh, they are racists.' Stop! We have to see every experience as a learning experience. Sometimes it's really not about us. It boils down to dollars and sense.

II. It's never too late to succeed. If you haven't achieved success by a certain age then you must be a failure and you'll never succeed. It's not true. It's a fallacy that has to be shattered.

III. You are not the check in the box that people put next to your name. You can transcend whatever it is others see you as.

IVDo your own research. Always use as much information around you as possible. Use the Internet and network. We have to be intellectually curious to seek out our next opportunity. If we are expecting it to come us, it's not going to come. We have to go get it.

V. Use your spirituality. We have everything inside us to succeed. We have talents that we don't realize until we seek them out on a spiritual level. I try to teach people in workshops that we can accomplish whatever it is we want, but we have to figure out what that is. We can accomplish this through spiritual visualization.

TRUE COLORS

"True Colors" is a song written by songwriters Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly. It was both the title track and the first single released from Cyndi Lauper'ssecond album. It was the only original song on the album that Lauper did not help write.
Billy Steinberg originally wrote "True Colors" about his own mother. Tom Kelly altered the first verse and the duo submitted the song to Cyndi Lauper. Their demo was in a form of piano based gospel ballad like "Bridge over Troubled Water". Steinberg told Songfacts that "Cyndi completely dismantled that sort of traditional arrangement and came up with something that was breathtaking and stark."[1] Other songs they wrote for Cyndi Lauper include "I Drove All Night" and "Unconditional Love", the former of which went on to be covered by Celine Dion, the latter of which went on to be covered by Susanna Hoffs.
It reached number 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, 3 in Australia, and 12 on the UK Singles Chart.
"True Colors" also became a standard in the gay community. Lauper embarked on a True Colors Tour in 2007 with several other acts including Deborah Harry and Erasure. The tour was for the Human Rights Campaign to promote human rights in the US and beyond. A second True Colors tour occurred in 2008.
